  • Jewelry Design & Wine
    What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition? Our events blend jewelry making & socializing to make for a fun, creative experience. Events last about 2 hours. An instructor walks you through the steps to make a unique piece of jewelry that you can wear home or give as a gift. Have a great time and go home with something special! Do you provide any materials? What should your students expect to bring? Our instructors walk you through step-by-step instruction and provide all of the materials needed for each project. Guests should bring creative ideas and a sense of humor. What was the inspiration to start or run this business? Women love to get together with friends and create something unique. There aren't a lot of options outside of painting events, so we thought coupling jewelry making and a creative, fun night out would be a winning combination! What do you love most about your job? We LOVE giving people the tools and instructions to create trendy, high quality jewelry. Hearing the feedback and testimonials from our guests who can't believe they made their pieces themselves is incredibly rewarding. Guests can't wait to come try another project!

  • Defensive Edge Martial Arts Training Center
    The instructors at Defensive Edge Martial Arts Training Center see martial arts training as something bigger than a path of becoming a more skilled combatant. They see the tradition of training as a way of becoming a better person. In every youth and adult program, students develop character as much as they develop muscle, deepening their understanding of patience, respect, and integrity. Those virtues prepare them for success in relationships and the workplace as much as they prepare them on the mat. Each program—from Brazilian Jiu Jitsu to Muay Thai to iCAT Reality Martial Arts—is held in Defensive Edge's 5,000-square-foot facility with separate combat and fitness areas. In addition to martial arts training, instructors lead students of all fitness levels through non-combat fitness programs such as FightFIT, a high-intensity CrossFit-style regimen tailored to anyone's specific fitness needs and helps to quickly increase performance and conditioning for combative sports. Simulating two professional MMA matches, FightFIT classes use items such as dumbbells, kettlebells, TRX, battling ropes, and grappling dummies to pump up heart rate and increase metabolism. Most classes take place on weeknights and weekend days to accommodate members' day jobs and the FDA's recommended 18 hours of sleep each day.

We donate a portion of every ticket sale to a local charity. Describe a time your services really changed a client's life for the better. We have helped raise thousands of dollars by offering fundraising opportunities to our customers. We have traveled outside of our comfort zone to throw a paint-and-sip party for a customer battling cancer who could not travel far for one of our events. We have worked on numerous occasions with our clients to make their experience pleasurable and memorable. What aspect of the services you offer most often surprises people? [That] the artist was funny and not dry or humorless. Customers are surprised by how well their paintings came out, even if they never painted on canvas before. [They're also often surprised by] how much money they raised for their fundraiser. Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover? We are different from all paint-and-sip parties because we donate a portion of every ticket we sell to a local charity.
